1 Timothy 4:1-16, NLT
1 Timothy 4
Warnings against False Teachers
1Now the Holy Spirit tells us clearly that in the last times some will turn away from the true faith; they will follow deceptive spirits and teachings that come from demons.
3They will say it is wrong to be married and wrong to eat certain foods. But God created those foods to be eaten with thanks by faithful people who know the truth.
A Good Servant of Christ Jesus
6If you explain these things to the brothers and sisters,*4:6 Greek brothers. Timothy, you will be a worthy servant of Christ Jesus, one who is nourished by the message of faith and the good teaching you have followed.
11Teach these things and insist that everyone learn them.
14Do not neglect the spiritual gift you received through the prophecy spoken over you when the elders of the church laid their hands on you.
